13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Black Lives Matter

On Dec.13, 2014 nationwide actions against police killings and racial profiling included a "Millions March" that drew tens of thousands to the streets of New York City. It was the largest single protest of the post-Ferguson movement and the culmination of daily actions in New York City since a grand jury elected not to indict the police officer who killed Eric Garner. This man's sign is a reference to an international activist movement, originating in the African American community, that campaigns against violence toward black people.
